HC Deb 26 August 1895 vol 36 c802
MR. H. H. MARKS (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consider the expediency of amending the present procedure in regard to Questions, with a view to facilitate the business of the House.


This subject of Questions has often been brought before the House, but no scheme has yet been devised by which useless and frivolous questions can be eliminated without at the same time eliminating useful questions to which hon. Members have a right to expect an answer. If my hon. Friend has any practical suggestions to make, I am sure I shall be very happy to hear them.
